The Recolour Process – It’s so easy!

1 . Clean & Surface Prep

Spray, scrub and wipe then lightly scuff the surface using super-fine sandpaper. Clean the dirt you can see and the dirt you can’t. Lasting results start with good surface prep. It’s important to remove soiling, silicones, waxes and oils

2 . Prime


Priming promotes optimum adhesion between the leather and the new coatings. Super easy to apply, you simply sponge it on evenly. It penetrates partially and dries quickly. Some kits on the market leave this step out which, we think, undermines a quality result

3. Colour

Could it be any easier? Just apply a couple of coats using a sponge allowing drying between each one. Self-levelling, the paint dries darker than when wet

4. Topcoat

You know the drill. Apply by sponge in long even strokes. The topcoat delivers desirable protection to the colour coatings and improved wear resistance. Two thorough coats are recommended.

Compare our kits with others on the market

When your pigmented leather was originally created, it was primed, coloured and then top-coated. Each product plays a role in creating a beautiful and enduring finish. You can replicate this process using Leather Hero pro-grade products. When comparing Repair Kits in the marketplace, make sure to check that leather Primer and Topcoat are included. Leather Paint alone, adds colour but may not give maximum durability.

  • Paint sticks but it sticks better to a primed surface. Paint wears well but it wears better when you give it a clear protective shield or topcoat
  • Short-cuts can backfire: self-priming formulations can’t give optimum results as primer and paint do two different things
  • Not all leather paints are equal – beware watered down formulations missing the crucial ingredients that make leather paint durable

Why restore your leather?

Exposed leather is highly porous, easily taking in body and hair oil, perspiration, spills and soiling. Refinishing it with new coatings not only restores the aesthetics but also builds a protective shield against contaminants which helps it last longer. The keys to leather that looks great as it ages are regular care and periodic coatings maintenance.

  • Just sponge, brush or spray it on
  • Dries fast; allows you to work quickly

Choosing the Right Repair Kit

There are 2 types of repair kits and a few different size options. Kits provide all the gear you need at a great bundle price. Depending on your job, one type may be more suitable than the other.


Repair Kits

Repair Kits are ideal for large or small complete refinishing projects. You can change the colour, recolour or touch-up a few scuffs or isolated sections. When covering stains, leather filler or treating leather that is very good condition, this is the way to go.

Colour Restoration Kits

Colour Restoration Kits are designed for refreshing the entire surface with the existing colour. When you want to give your old sofa a quick and easy make-over, Colour Restoration Kits are the answer. Coverage is semi-opaque and increases with each coat giving you lots of control. Scratches, scuffs and colour wear are dramatically minimised giving a remarkably renewed look and feel.


Customize Your Kit

With 4 kit sizes and the option to customize what’s in the box, you are sure to find the one for your job. Get what you need and nothing you don’t.
